IN PHOTOS: Pia charms wounded soldiers at AFP Medical Center
Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach set aside time from her busy schedule to visit wounded soldiers at Armed Forces of the Philippines Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon.
Battle casualties who met Wurtzbach were visibly star-struck with the beauty queen titleholder.
“Nanginginig ako na may halong tuwa. Ang nasabi ko lang thank you,” said Corporal Fulgencio Gacutan of the Army’s Special Forces. He sustained an AK47 gunshot that broke his left arm.
Employees eagerly waited for Wurtzbach, who came from a noontime show from a TV station nearby.
Wurtzbach also met with HIV patients from another hospital.
“They say it’s their day but I feel like it’s my day being with them,” the newly crowned Miss Universe told media after the event. FM
